Water Shades for 9-man and fogging issue

Has anyone tried Sea Specs, Oakley water jackets or HN Water Shades?



If so what are your thoughts, feedback.

I have a pair of SeaSpecs they fit nice do not come off, perfect for 9-man season, but they fog up like crazy.
I have read that rain-x works to prevent the fogging, does rain-x harm the polarized lenses.

Take a look at Kaenon Hard Core. Mine have never fogged. I paddle prone (paddleboard), so they take a beating on a regular basis. The best glasses I have ever had, on and off the water. Expensive, but worth every penny.

try using goggle defog. put it on your lenses when they are dry.then rinse before you go out.

Did Molokai 2011 in Sea Specs -- change-overs and all -- absolutely no problem. Just don't wear them too tight.

I work in the glasses biz and glasses (cheap or pricey) will fog up if they don't fit right. Fit is key, adequate ventilation around the lens for sure, if it's hugging your face too much no matter what frame, it'll fog up.

No fool around. For what us guys do out in the water, no can beat Kurtis "no fried eyes" goggles for surfers. The buggahs float, flexible and so far no fog up. Best goggles for surf and prone (lay down) style paddleboaders, where the water always splash in the face. Check em out: at www.kurtisusa.com

ps: if you no like spend the bucks, try go use baby shampoo (rub on and rinse), the stuff no sting the eye. Or in a pinch, crumple some Naupaka leaves and smear on your old sun glasses.

I did the Anacapa race this past weekend in SeaSpecs after applying a few drops of swim goggle anti-fog spray i had no problems with fogging.

as YankeeHookele mentioned fit is key i kept them a little loose and there was adequate ventilation.

I just received a pair of HN water goggles. same mold as SeaSpecs lenses are a little darker,

I reccomend SeaSpecs especially for 9 man season..

hands down the best


Light, no fog, super comfy. When you trash the lens you can change them for cheap. I love mine. Surf, paddle, fish whatevers. no more trashed windburned eyes.

ask jc9, bad ass.

I should be a advertising rep for this company.

I simply coat my sunglasses in Rain-X. Works like a charm.

@Kileki.. is rain x safe on polarized lenses?

CR...I've never put it on polarized lenses so I can't personally attest to it. I have read that the polarization is molded into the lens (of more expensive types of sunglasses) and that people haven't had a problem putting RainX on them.
